Wireless router hooked up to your modem.
The router should have 4 or 8 cable ports and an 802.11b/g wireless radio for compatibility.

Linksys makes a good one, as do others.
Prolly less than $100 to set the whole thing up.

+1 hook a wireless router into your modem.

i'd reset the modem as bridge and set the router up as PPPoE or whatever the modem is using, but that may be overkill.

Stay away from that Linksys N crap. I paid a computer guy $300 to replace my G crap last week only to have Linksys admit they might have exaggerated a tad. The G band stuff was BETTER! That crap went straight back to BB.

Also, since I keep my laptop plugged in what's one more wire? My wireless is SLOWER.
